It took 82 years for this vintage truck to develop its rusty look. In its younger years, it worked on a farm before it was put in storage and then sat in a junkyard. The insides of the car have been restored, but the owners decided to keep the rustic charm on the outside.

This vintage truck was made to be on a Christmas card. The second owner bought the car in 2010 and did his best to restore it to its original condition. Everyone gathers around to admire his work every time he brings the car out for a ride.

This all-metal exterior truck had a fifth wheel plate that was used to pull trailers. If you want to drive this truck today you’ll have to learn to use the hand choke on the dashboard to start it, operate a manual transmission that has a stiff clutch, learn how to turn without power steering, not have power brakes, and only listen to the one radio station it gets.
